With her hands full with fast-breaking clues, our intrepid detective just wishes that she can return to her infant bundle of joy. James Patterson and Maxine Paetro at the top of their game. Now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    Sigh...does anyone remember 1st To Die written only by James Pat

    Sigh...does anyone remember 1st To Die written only by James Patterson? It had one continuous plot, fantastic story and character development, and chapters that were more than 2 pages. The Women's Murder Club meant something and they all worked together to solve a mystery. That was a great book! Ah, those were the days.

    Now we have 12th of Never, probably named because that's the next time I'll read this book. So many stories that you can't really appreciate or enjoy any of them because there's not enough time to develop any of them fully and give the resolution any appreciation or real meaning. All the resolutions just seemed thrown together as if the authors didn't put a lot of time or thought into them.

    My final thoughts:
    1. Enough of the June storyline. What was even the point of her being in one scene of this book? That horse was beaten dead in the last book. Let it go.

    2. Come up with one mystery and let the club come together to solve it like the earlier books. Any one of the mysteries in this book would have been fabulous if developed more and allowed to completely play out.

    3. More Jacobi. I miss him not being around so much.

    Lastly, I predict next year's title to be Friday the 13th. Next year, I'll look back at this and see if I was right.

    How unfair and manipulative!!!!!!

    This book end with a cliffhanger, so that we are almost forced to buy the next book for a conclusion. Guess what? I am not buying another book for more than $11.- just to finish and get to the conclusion. Apparently Mr Patterson like our government, has lost touch with the little people. What a dirty trick to play on his fans.

    Unhappy Reader...

    I am very disappointed in the way the series of the Women's Murder Club Books are going. It has changed so much from the earlier books and NOT for the better! The ending was very disappointing. It was certainly meant to be a cliff hanger - so that you have to buy the next book to see what happens. IF I read any further books of this series I will be checking it out from the Library - will NOT be spending any more money on this series until I see that it has improved.

    Very disappointed

    I have read all of the womens murder club books and I look forward to each one. That said, this #12 series was a total boring disappointment. I forgot I was reading a womans murder club book.......what happened to these characters, they were not interesting at all. Lindsay Boxer was the biggest disappointment. The storyline was all over the place and then leaves you with a cliffhanger that I am not even sure I care about. I think Mr. Patterson needs to go back to the drawing board.

    Disappointment

    I loved all of the Women's Murder Club books but this was a big disappointment. The book was boring and had no depth to it. I love all the main characters but the cases they were working on in this book were very unrealistic. The biggest letdown was the ending, the story just stops and ends ABRUPTLY! It leaves you hanging and thinking, WHAT!? The ending leaves you to believe there will be a 13th book in the series, which I will read with the hope that J. P. once again, writes an awesome thriller that cannot be put down!

    James Patterson is becoming more and more dissapointing. For a long time I would purchase (well, I still do but keep asking myself why?)one of his books as soon as they were available. Whether it was a Alex Cross book or whatever. Obviously you have it figured out what I'm going to say. Patterson is running out of juice. His great characters in this series are undeveloped and weak.I know for one I was looking forward to each and everyone. Didn't happen. He did not bring them all together until way into the book. He wasted words and paper by not having one or 2 great mysteries that all the girls work on together.
    Overall this long awaited book was a huge dissapointment. I feel that Patterson is getting all written out. His Alex Cross books were brilliant and nail biters. Not any longer. I don't like all the co-authored books, just one more way to make money without having to exert himself. Not to sure I will go for the "Womens Murder Club" or another Cross book anytime soon.

    Not the best effort

    Maybe I'm getting tired of James Patterson - I sigh sometimes over plot devices and dialogue, and this book is no different - there are a couple of good twists, but it's pretty much a ho-hum in my view.

    A must read - for all the Womens Murder Club fans

    I just love this series! James Patterson is a master of character development. I can't wait for the next installation. I always have the same feeling at the end of his books - I want more!! His characters are endearing, you feel as though you know them and their little quirks. I hope he continues to write about them until Lindsey's daughter grows up!! Delightful!! Strange word for a murder/mystery book!

    Great as usual!

    I anticipated the release of this book and was not disappointed. I wanted to read it non stop to see what was going to happen next and loved every minute of it. I finished it so fast, I was sad it was over. Which, of course, will only build my anticipation for the next one.

    Too many sub plots

    I am a big fan of Lyndsey Boxer and friends but this book has so many sub plots that will leave your head spinning. Never knew which plot I would be encountering when I opened the book up.....a professor who for sees death, a murdered actress, an attorney on trial for murder, a sick baby, and then a murderer in prison comes out of a coma and wants to talk....the latter was added half way through the book! Too much.

    Character development disappointing....Lyndsey shows up at ICU to visit her daughter and never goes in to actually see her. Really?!

    Not the pair's best book.
